A great trip for those who want to visit Krakow in a relaxed atmosphere. Ms. Ewa told many interesting facts, so in four hours we got to know the city from different sides. Really worth. You will see a lot at a great price for such a dose of knowledge.

We stay a week in Krakow. With 3 days of city pass you can easily optimize it. If you stay short, it will be difficult to organize the visits with the opening hours etc because with 12 tourist districts it takes time to travel

Guide was very knowledgeable and passionate. Gave me lots of information and recommendations. Got lucky and was the only one in the tour. Helped me begin my stay in Krakow in a fantastic way. Definitely recommend.

Very handy. Go everywhere by tram and bus. And access to 40 museums. And skip the row is very convenient too. Recommended !

We had a great guide. She answered all of our questions and was very personable.
